More about the speaker
Stacey is owner and architect of Stemach Design + Architecture. Stacey’s passion for careful, unique design and a dedication to holistic sustainability has led to a number of successful, award-winning solutions for urban renewal and building renovation. At ease designing a desk lamp or planning a new neighborhood corridor, his creativity stems from an innate sense of how people interact with their built environment.
Stacey spent the formative years of his career in New England, which exposed him to renovation work in historically significant projects. During this time, he coordinated with several large public agencies, including the New York City Housing Authority, the Maine State Housing Authority, and private educational entities.
After relocating to Bend with his wife in 2003, Stacey worked as a project manager entrusted with design and management responsibilities on projects for many public agencies in Oregon. These included Crook, Jefferson, and Deschutes Counties, along with the City of Madras, the City of Sisters, and the City of McMinnville. He has worked with public funding agencies, including the USDA Rural Development, USDA HUD programs, the Oregon Community Development Block Grant, and the Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council. He has provided expert guidance on a variety of urban-situated offices, industrial, and housing facilities across Central Oregon.
Stacey takes an active role in the community by giving time to various civic groups and nonprofits. He is currently the Chair of the non-profit Building a Better Bend, serves on OSU-Cascades’ Campus Expansion Advisory Committee (CEAC), participates on the CEAC Housing and Sustainability Task Forces, and volunteers on the City of Bend UGB Technical Advisory Committee. He is also a signing charter member of the City of Bend’s Galveston Avenue Improvement Task Force.
